public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledg

clinton said that secretary believes rice has done 88 a suburb job as -- done a quote, suburb job as u.n. ambassador. contravened their statements to the american people. and congress. we'll take all that up here tonight with former cia operative, mike baker, author of "new york times" bestseller, the amateur, inside look at obama administration. ed klein, what would mildred friedman think of obamanomics. is this a cover-up by the obama administration? certainly the administration has stonewalled congress and the national media about details of what happened on september 11. the obama administration is chosen to rely on the fbi to investigate the terrorist attacks in benghazi. which killed 4 americans including our ambassador. fbi investigators however remain in tripoli, they have now been for almost 3 weeks, they have done nothing, seen nothing, and obama administration, refers all questions to the fbi. which knows nothing. one could say, conveniently show, fox news correspondent katherine hairage has been reporting this throughout we turn to katherine for a live report. reporter: tha
, you have a point there, but look, i think there's someone else here, bill clinton. had ronald reagan been alive and able to walk into the republican convention and say, look, let's look at, i've been there, turned one of these things around and mitt romney is the guy, i think maybe they would have, at an arbiter of economic policy, i think reagan would have succeeded where bill clinton did for the democrats. bill clinton came into that convention, said i've done it, i've turned an economy around. you remember when i was president, the good economic times and job growth we had. stuart: and bill clinton got it wrong in his dnc speech. he said, no president, no president could have turned around what barack obama inherented. he was flat-out wrong. ronald reagan turned things around from a worse position. >> no, but what i'm saying, i'm not arguing those points, i'm saying that what happened was clinton is, was there and was able to say, i couldn't have turned it around no one could have and if you look since that speech, that's where obama started to have this, you know, this move up in
to be taken down. a former clinton press secretary, debate commission on those warnings from a guy who two decades ago almost up into the presidential race. very good to have you. >> good to be with you. neil: i remember. he and his charts. i remember bill clinton responding to that, addressing that. many will argue, it was your boss to did address some of the same debt issues that perot claim to fame for. but he is back saying both parties have let him down. i think he goes on to say that he does not like other guy and that both parties have essentially risk throwing the country down the drain. is that resonating? >> i think that is classically ross perot. i think that would be an attitude you expected to have. there is an opportunity with these debates on wednesday night to get to some on the specifics that some of your commentators say are missing. we are hoping the format we have for these debates will get back beyond some of these slogans and the traditional talking points we are hearing from some of the candid it's an get into a more substantive discussion. neil: they can bring chart
to see you. neil: how did it good? >> best performance since bill clinton in 1992. mitt romney strategically did everything he needed to do, and the democrats know that. if you look at the democratic spin, people walking around tonight, they are downcast. neil: you know -- >> there are at many of them. they don't have as much to say. neil: just peek around the audience, the number of democrats, seeing the ratio like 8-to-1 republicans. that's just me. you're seeing congressman chaffetz interviewed, but what do you say to that? >> you can't be a great communicator unless you have great things to communicate. president obama faltered tonight. he was halting. he was on the defensive. he couldn't wait to get off the stage. there's a reason for that. neil: that's your opinion. >> well, no, you could observe the fact he got off the stage. neil: i heard a lot, comments to jim lehrer, about you took my five seconds. >> there's a reason president obama struggled tonight. he struggled the last four years. you can't make a great defense of a record that's not been great. you can't communi
at bill clinton he had a democratally controlled congress he got things. president obama got stimulus passed . there are examples, but does that help the economy or better off under one party. >> johnathon is saying something that is fund amam. look ridiculous. this would be a totalitarian government and one party rule all of the time and so they could pass the legislation . get rid of them altogether and have a dictator. congress you have to understand. constitution was drafted by men afraid of government and trying to protect the people from their own government and not giving the government power to do something. but the powers in the constitution are negative to the government so that people will have as johnathon said freedom to do what they want to do. you don't need the other stuff to do that . >> at the same time is it better where we are with the economy now to have one party and at least get something done. it may not be the best thing but something done . >> i think not. i agree with johnathon which is frightening me right now. in britain it is a parlimentary and possible t
bill that the president clinton reluctantly signed, people said there would be people starving in the streets. that didn't happen. half the people got off low rolls and the poverty rate went down. there were happier. >> exactly right. the first thing that ever got past. get elected to the house of representatives and ohio. i don't know if that's good or bad. anyway. the first thing that got past was an amendment to the welfare reform bill which required time limits. after a certain point in time if you are an able-bodied adult we will no longer pay you for not working, and guess what happened? no one got kicked off. no one got ticked off because deadlines influence behavior. from going to find a job or going to go get the skills to get a job so i'll have to face that deadline in the kicked off of any type of public health assistance. it worked. those people have moved on to a better -- john: that video which makes reference to the welfare reform. your new version of it. let's plan that clip. >> almost 3 million families. we can do it again. help get americans out of poverty. th
. he couldn't put the entire picture together. he kept going back to go back to lincoln and clinton. the fact is when clinton was president the economy was very different. you can't say the same policies that worked under clinton will work when we had over 8% unemployment for 43 months straight. that is where romney showed his strength. stuart: let me draw your attention to the stock market. in the last couple minutes we have seen the dow go straight up. we are now up 96 points getting close to 13-6 on the dow industrials. top of the hour we got the 5% drop in factory orders. that suggests a weakening economy. we got a 3.36% rate on 30 year fixed rate mortgages at an all-time low. maybe that suggests a lot of money printing by the fed and a weak economy. i don't have another explanation why the dow is up 95 except that. lousy factory orders means ben bernanke will print bigger. >> no bad news out of europe. everyone is focused on europe and not what is going on in the economy domestically. a lot of schizophrenic information. great manufacturing numbers early in the weekend bad numbe
median income went up during the 1980s. it also happened, by the way, under president clinton with a republican congress. there's been times in the past where we've had a steady increase in the median income. >> the tax code is a huge barrier to production and demand. you don't get demand without production. the lower tax code means there's less of a burden and people do more positive things. >> okay, folks. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> oh, my god, like, this is the most amazing show. i've enjoyed every minute of it. and, like, you know, it's important to take a moment every now and again and be, like, wow. >> you know, like, i have the same reaction when i watch neil's special coverage. see what all the excitement is about this wednesday when he heads to denver for the first presidential debate. first at 4:00 p.m. eastern. that's on fox news channel. then at 8:00 a.m. on fox business network, where i'll join him. neil will cover all the debates like no one else. watch it and profit from it. >>> coming up next, governor romney investing prescott privas in china, not o
we have very unusual circumstances, when bush did it in '91 during the iraq invasion, when clinton did it in 2000, it happened, for a specific situation in 2004. when george w. bush did in 2005, because of katrina. when obama did it, a year ago, it was because of libya. and in each case, price the went down significantly. i don't think the obama administration will do it now because it will look too political and might actually be political if they were to do it, but i would note that gas prices are starting to come down from where they had been and romney, who is blaming obama for the increase in gas prices is not giving obama any credit for the gas prices actually going down. >> all right. jonas? >> i think that the government could make money trading this thing, and in charge of the spr. and sell at $100 a barrel and announce you're going to drill in the public lands and-- i'm saying that's not the job of government and moreover a political thing wouldn't become a thing it make money, it'd be to drive prices down before the election. and for the iran situation, that's probably w
chairman darrell ice looking to secretary of state hillary clinton for answers. telling congressmen issa the extra resources are being denied despite firebombings and online death threats. vice presidential nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is part of a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired
clinton, and he had a different way of going about this. >> my partner, mack penn and i, handled the messages, and bill clinton wanted to be challenged. he wanted people to take positions so he would stimulate and simulate what debates were like. i don't have a sense this president is necessarily operating in the same fashion. gerri: as you look at this, we have a poll here, winners of last night debates, among uncommitted voters, 46%, only 22% liked obama's performance. does that -- a, does that surprise you? b, what other fallout from the debate? romney attract more money? what's going on? >> it surprises me that that many people thought the president did well. you know, polls show the president's 20 some odd percent of people thought the president won the debate. i don't know who they are unless they are democratic supporters of the president who support him no matter what he said. there's a different take than what doug offered in the argument. there's no question he had several points in the debate, sort of nodding towards the center or talked about the importance of biparti
. neil: why? >> held up, the mart held that up. you talk about the clinton effect from the convention, probably overstated. neil: bad reflection on the republican nominee? >> i think a lot more of it has to do with the fact that people, when they start paying attention to this, and they look at all the economic indicator, and they recognize that my average income is down over what it was when president obama took office, by average, the average in the economy is $4500. my health care costs are up by 30%. college tuition up 25 #%. fuel costs have more than doubled, and we have this massive debt that we're piling on the backs of the children and grandchildren. that's going to start to resinate and i think sink in. neil: when does that happen, senator? there's an argument, as you probably heard, that the economic numbers of late are better. they are not great. better is certainly not good. we got an adp report, private sector growth, stronger than thought. still on the same day there was a report from hewlitt packard that things look lousy for the next few years. it's in the eye of the b
the "a team" former clinton advisor doug shoen and democratic campaign strategist with joe trip be. kevin, you were urged tweeting throughout the debate were you surprised or impressed by governor romney's other domination? >> i have not been impressed in person. he does not come off as being that commanding. he gets complaints about being vague about his agenda but he was so quick and ready it took the edge off. i was pleasantly surprised. >> totally. he is an expert. more likable and commanding than i expected. and the president was stammering, unfocused. lou: sitting there watching this i could not believe anyone seeking to hold the office would have his head down not address his opponent. it was bad manners aside from everything else. >> i agree i was surprised how sharp he was. it was a great performance. but barack obama with plenty of the debates hillary and edwards drove the debates pushing forward. he did not engaged later he got better. >> have you ever seen a better debater? >> there have been. lou: i am curious. >> ronald reagan. lou: he lost in the first one. >> two out of th
. clinton says his comments were arrogant and stupid. do you think the advice will register to change the campaign? >> i have tried to be measured in side -- my comments by have been inside to presidential campaigns. look at my op-ed tomorrow. over the last month there have been nine the polls obama is that 50% in only 20. the average number is 47 mitt romney is 47. the media says the race is over. eight years ago at the same time thereafter 30 polls bush was at or above 50% john kerry was five points behind in "the new york times" said it is too close to call. he is at or above the number half the time and two and a half times as much this is the blowout? no. it is a close race. obama's problem he cannot get 50% the number on the election day is likely to be less than your final number because your detractors will vote against you. gerri: it is about the spin. thank you for coming. enjoy the debate. pundits and politicos debates of the long run but they cannot blasted the memorable moments. number 51992. vice presidential showdown with james stock dale. >> admiral stock dale? >> who
by popular demand is back. former clinton adviser doug shown. probably by popular demand. nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. what is this ipo, the new company that helps protect you from identity theft? >> reporter: that's right. fraud protection. life clock is the name of the company. the ipo yesterday. the price $9. that was the low range and opened up to the downside. down over 3%. coming off of the lows. the lowest point was a dollars and $0.36. with the name of the company to mecca think everyone knows the of the company. this but some much money on marketing. stuart: okay. a number that just came in. we thought it would move the market, but it's not a particularly big movement. it's an indication of the service sector of the economy. the reading was 55. it is up from the 53 reading the month before. no impact on the market at all. we were down ten when the number came in. down eight as of now, so this is a non impact number. june 2007, then candidate obama addressed a mostly black audience of ministers in the aftermath of katrina. here's what he said. >> wh
, is bill clinton coming into some? wakeup. john mccain. the republican national committee seized on governor romney's dominance in the evening sky and the president's principal reaction to that and entitled the smirk. >> the cut the deficit in half. four years later and we have a trillion dollar deficit. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. the people who are having a hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried. there just being crushed. middle income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. at the same time gasoline prices have doubled. electric rates are up, food prices are up. if you're reelected we will get to a trillion dollar debt. you have said before you cut the debt in half. lou: and to post debate polls gave the debate to governor romney. by a huge margin. in fact, the biggest one in history according to one of those polls. the cbs poll showed that 42 percent called romney the victor with only 22 percent standing with the president. the same poll
had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. and the reason this is important is because by doing that, we cannot only reduce the deficit, we cannot only encourage job growth through small businesses, but we're also able to make the investmentings necessary in education or in energy. and we do have a difference, though, when it comes to definitions of small business. under my plan 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says, well, those top 3%, they're the job creators, they'd be burdened. but under governor romney's definition, there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires are small businesses. donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything, but that's how you define small businesses if you're getting business income. and that kind of approach, i believe, will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for it without either burden the middle class or blowing up our
. that is not going to happen. one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is we put two wars and two tax cut on a credit card and governor romney want another $5 trillion in tax cuts? not i have anything to say about it. that won't happen. we are not going to let this country fall backward. not with so much at stake. we have got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers and two million workers at community college and bring down the cost of college tuition. connell: president obama live in the campaign rally in fairfax, virginia with his first reaction to the drop in unemployment rate talking about the five million jobs he says have been created under his watch and now going into campaign arguments we are likely to hear. dagen: that is your headline if running for reelection. unemployment rate at the lowest level since he took office. back to where it was in january of 2009. on the other side from mitt romney lat
